IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Frequently Asked Questions
Question
Response
1. Why does the Indicator
Light turn ON and OFF?
As stated in the manual, the Indicator Light
goes ON to indicate when the Grill's elements
are heating. The Indicator Light goes OFF
when the proper temperature has been
reached. The thermostat will cycle ON and
OFF throughout the cooking process to maintain proper temperature.
2. After cooking with garlic,
how can I remove the smell
of the garlic from the surface of my George Foreman
Grill?
After cleaning your George Foreman Grill
according to the "User Maintenance
Instructions" make a paste of baking soda and
water and spread on the surface of the Grill.
Allow it to sit for a few minutes and then wipe
away with a damp sponge or cloth.
3. Can I cook frozen food on
my George Foreman Grill?
It is preferable that food be defrosted before
placing on the George Foreman Grill. Make
sure that the Grill is preheated, see preheat
instructions, before placing food on the grilling
plate.
4. Can I cook kabobs on the
George Foreman Grill?
Yes. In order to protect the non-stick surface,
use wooden skewers. We recommend that
you soak the skewers first in water for about
20 minutes. This will keep the skewers from
burning.
10. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated
oven.
5. How can I cook hot dogs
and link sausage on my
George Foreman Grill?
Preheat your Grill. Place the hot dogs lengthwise on the Grill. Close the Lid and cook for
5-8 minutes or until desired browning is
achieved. Rearrange on grill as needed.
11. Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing
hot oil or other hot liquids. Allow liquid to cool before removing and
emptying drip tray.
6. Can browned potato patties
be prepared on my George
Foreman Grill?
Yes, preheat the Grill. Add hash brown patties
onto the Grill surface, close the Lid, and cook
for approximately 10 minutes or until sizzling.
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
1. Read all instructions.
2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs. Use oven mitts or
pot holders.
3. To protect against electric shock, do not immerse cord, plugs, or
appliance in water or other liquid.
4. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or
near children.
5. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to
cool before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning the
appliance.
6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after
the appliance malfunctions, or has been damaged in any manner.
Contact Consumer Service for examination, repair or adjustment.
7. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may cause injuries.
8. Do not use outdoors.
9. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
12. To disconnect, remove plug from wall outlet.
13. Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

George Foreman’s PowerBurger
A flavorful hamburger that we think tastes even better than its all-meat
cousin! It pays to eat meals that minimize meat. To reduce saturated fat
in a typical burger, you can cut back on the amount of meat and make up
for it with plant-based ingredients. Bread crumbs and chopped vegetables have been added in this recipe. You could also try cooked rice, other
grains or cereal. In addition, choose whole wheat buns; they typically
contain one less fat gram than regular or even reduced-calorie buns.
If you settle for nothing less than a cheeseburger, Swiss cheese
is 1 gram lower in fat than Cheddar, American or Monterey Jack with 8
grams of fat versus 9 in each ounce of cheese. However, reduced fat
cheeses like Cheddar or Swiss contain half the fat with 4 grams per
ounce. Mustard contains 1 gram of fat per tablespoon versus a whopping 11 grams of fat in a tablespoon of mayonnaise.
Top your burger in healthful style with dark, leafy green lettuce, shredded
cabbage, fresh cilantro, basil or spinach.
1/2 cup chopped vegetables such as yellow onions,
green onions, zucchini, parsley (can be sautéed)
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
• In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the vegetables and bread
crumbs. Add the ground beef and mix well.
• Shape the mixture into eight 3-inch wide patties.
• Preheat the Grilling Machine. Place two patties on the grill at a time.
Close the Lid.
• Cook for 4 - 5 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink and the
juices run clear, turning once. Repeat with the remaining patties
• Yield: Serves 8

George’s Sausage Texas Style
A spicy sausage with true Southwestern zip! These breakfast sausages
are great served with a sautéed vegetable or fresh salsa and egg
scramble. Buy 90% lean ground beef for the least-fat sausage. Ninety

being saturated.

George Foreman’s PowerBurger
A flavorful hamburger that we think tastes even better than its all-meat
cousin! It pays to eat meals that minimize meat. To reduce saturated fat
in a typical burger, you can cut back on the amount of meat and make up
for it with plant-based ingredients. Bread crumbs and chopped vegetables have been added in this recipe. You could also try cooked rice, other
grains or cereal. In addition, choose whole wheat buns; they typically
contain one less fat gram than regular or even reduced-calorie buns.
If you settle for nothing less than a cheeseburger, Swiss cheese
is 1 gram lower in fat than Cheddar, American or Monterey Jack with 8
grams of fat versus 9 in each ounce of cheese. However, reduced fat
cheeses like Cheddar or Swiss contain half the fat with 4 grams per
ounce. Mustard contains 1 gram of fat per tablespoon versus a whopping 11 grams of fat in a tablespoon of mayonnaise.
Top your burger in healthful style with dark, leafy green lettuce, shredded
cabbage, fresh cilantro, basil or spinach.
1/2 cup chopped vegetables such as yellow onions,
green onions, zucchini, parsley (can be sautéed)
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
• In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the vegetables and bread
crumbs. Add the ground beef and mix well.
• Shape the mixture into eight 3-inch wide patties.
• Preheat the Grilling Machine. Place two patties on the grill at a time.
Close the Lid.
• Cook for 4 - 5 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink and the
juices run clear, turning once. Repeat with the remaining patties
• Yield: Serves 8
This recipe is from "The Healthy Gourmet" (Clarkson Potter) by Cherie
Calbom.
